Mapping Providers and GIS in Brazil

Geographic Information Systems in BrazilGovernment Mapping Data ProvidersMapping Companies in BrazilConsidering the size of the Brazilian territory, mapping information can be considered a necessity for companies of many segments, especially for the ones that operate in transportation, construction and extraction. The country is not only large but also presents wide areas covered by vegetation and urban regions where streets are constantly changing. Historically, Geographic Information Systems in Brazil were restricted to professionals in the areas of cartography, surveying, topography and geography, who mainly worked in public institutions. Brazilian authorities treated mapping as a matter of national security and only a few companies registered with the Armed Forces were able to produce maps. With satellite mapping and the Global Positioning System, a new era of GIS began as the demand for this data multiplied and the private sector developed a market of geo-referenced and spatial information. Smaller-sized institutions such as departments from medium sized municipalities, also...

CO2 emissions - Our World in Data

Growth in emissions was still relatively slow until the mid-20th century. In 1950 the world emitted just over 5 billion tonnes of (CO 2) – about the same as the US, or half of China’s annual emissions today. By 1990 this had quadrupled to 22 billion tonnes. Emissions have continued to grow rapidly; we now emit over 36 billion tonnes each year.

In recent years, however, it has been beset by a major political corruption scandaland economic downturn. Dilma Rousseff, of the centre-left Workers’ party, was elected president for a second term in October 2014. However, she was impeached in August 2016 for allegedly manipulating government accounts ending 13 years of rule by the party. Her term was also overshadowed by a bribery scandal and a severe recession. Hundreds more Brazilian politicians have been investigated or charged with corruption. Michel Temer, vice-president under Rousseff and chairman of the centre-right PMDB party, who was confirmed as the new president in 2016, was last year formally charged for taking bribes from meat-packing giant JBS.
